L’autre est ton miroir (how we mirror and project)

Others beings are the reflection of ourselves and how we interact with them is a reflection of how we interact with our own self.

It is crazy when we think about it but it is just simply the law of attraction manifesting itself to us and around us… according to our own vibe.

Being aware of this changes the game. Because then it becomes easier to work on self development. Welcome to a life of free everyday never-ending therapy session YAY !

When I realized that traits I loved and admired in other humans was none other than resources present within me that I did not exploit… it was so EMPOWERING! “Wow yes I can do this too and I didn’t know 😊”

On the other hand, when it came to my mind that what I could not stand or bare in others were personal traits I did not accept or made peace with… OK that part was harder to digest, no lie.

*Positive note: how amazing to see that we would always have room for improvement if we listen to our own emotions.

In addition, when you own your reality and stop projecting on those around you, what a suprize to discover how much they project on you too 😮 You start to understand that some things you almost thought were true about yourself are clearly NOT. You begin to dissociate what you ARE VS. what people project of you (which is their business and none of yours, by the way).

And what a relief!!! Especially when humans are the best at blaming others for their own situations.

Which leads us to the concept of responsability over your own actions and words.

“Look what you made me do!”. Ughh I hate that sentence. Actually, when you get the idea that the only responsible for your choices is YOU, you align with your decision-making. And of course, you no longer accept the projections and guilt trips some individuals would send you to.

– “No Germain I ain’t made you do sh*t!” (Sorry to whoever is named Germain)

Taking full accountability of what you say and do implicitely means: be careful of what you say and do. Do your best, at least try. Then let others do their part of the work.

Owning your perceptions and reactions inevitably stops at letting others be accountable for their own.

It is the butterfly effect: each little step one takes has a consequence on the rest of their life so try to live every minute mindfuly. Be ready to faces consequences good or bad, hurtful or liberating, or even both at the same time. This is what “growing up” feels like (yep it hurts in the process and after a while it gets better).

You can only focus on your karma in a lifetime. Let others deal with theirs. You deserve all of your time and energy so focus on your life lessons.

Peace & Love

Why you should leave home to find yourself

I have always been an advocate for travel 😊 and I am aware there are many people for whom it is not a priority. Some people are like birds who need to fly to be themselves and some others are like trees that need to grow their roots in order to extend and nurrish their leaves.

Here I would like to adress to both types, travelers and non travelers. I think that there is at least one time in your life when you should go to find yourself.

The smaller your hometown is and the sooner you should think about exploring another corner of the world…at least temporarily.

1. The sooner the better

This is no scoop… Young brains are more absorbant.

When we grow up, our brains are in development and neuronal connexions are forming until you reach some age when your neuroplasticity is going to slowly decrease.

In other words we better learn/see/taste/hear/smell/experience new stuff while we are young because the older we get and the harder it gets to digest new informations and change our thinking processes.

2. Growth is not in your confort zone

Of course in our hometown, the daily routine is somewhat predictable and comforting. Who wouldn’t want to live in an environement without any bad surprises?

Well… I hope you did not say “ME” while reading because sorry: this would be pure ILLUSION. You cannot be against bad suprises and for good surprises at the same time because they work together and it is what we call LIFE.

It’s ok to be scared of change, of the unknown… growth itself is scary. Nevertheless, the best version of yourself is on the other side of the river.

And who knows what great surprises awaits you, it is probably just one plane ticket away!

3. Experiences shape your whole being

Discover what you like/what you don’t, what you want/what you don’t takes ages (decades at least). Try things: give your best, fail, restart, accomplish things. Repeat. Over and over, as much as needed.

People say practice makes perfect but you know what? Trying makes you YOU.

Offering your self a new environment is like changing the ground for a flower in a pot when it needs new nutriments.

4. Don’t become a victim of others opinion

In a whole different environment you discover what is YOU opposed to “what you were teached to be”.

People always have something to say about everybody, especially if you grow up in a restricted area. The more I try to view this as an “extreme” extension of caring for each other, and the more I see finally that however your actions are perceived what matters are the actions themselves.

If you are ok with what you are doing and you are not harming anyone, why should the perception of others matter to you?

If this resonates to you… imagine how freeing it is to reach in a new place where you are not related to anyone. Imagine a place where people could not care less about what you do! Mmm sounds good right?

And of course, it does not change the fact that those who love and care about you deeply will continue to do so. You basically are not losing anything. These is just about gaining freedom and space for yourself.

5. You deserve unlimited opportunities

This is a whole mindset of accepting that you deserve the best. But no country or piece of land has it all nor is perfect. Sorry but wonderland does not exist on Earth (yeah it made me sad too LOL). So go for it, look for what is good for you and let your intuition guide you towards what is a appealing to you. Even if it means to move from where you are.

Your calling is yours and yours only, so don’t be surprised if it leads you where nobody close to you goes or has ever been. Once you get there, you would probably be amazed to see that you are not the first, nor the last to do so.

6. Confront yourself to other cultures and diversity

Remember adaptation is a vital surviving skill. Why not test your surviving skills? There is nothing more rewarding then succeeding your own personal challenges. It is a sort of Koh Lanta but when you win, you win self-trust and self-pride. The 2 most priceless feelings you can offer yourself.

The best part of it: NEW always has a special taste. At the end of your life, you are more likely to reminisce on the first time you did this or that… rather the 1001st time.

If you are still afraid to jump, remember that you do not have to be alone. It is super important to have your support system and people to have your back. You also have way more resources inside of you than you can imagine. But you will only know that for sure AFTER the first step. You got this!!!


7 life lessons I got from Irma

Hurricane Irma challenged the life balance of a lot of us, directly or indirectly. A lot of us consider there is a before and an after.

For me it sure sounded like an end but quickly life continued in other forms. It was a temporal point of rupture leading to a new reality.

1. Time is precious


First of all, you realize the true meaning of YOLO “You Only Live Once”. Yeah bro.

And then you have flashes of all those times you screamed YOLO before taking a tequila shot in a party thinking that life couldn’t be sweeter… so young and such a bouffoon. 😅🙃🤦‍♂️🤦‍♀️

B/ Time is relative

Oops… you then come accross the fact that a lifetime is not as long as you thought.

Also, in times of crisis your notion of time becomes relative to the satisfaction of your basic needs.

One true luxury in this world is TIME.

2. Adaptation is the key


which is hard and quickly after that


Only the strong will continue like Damian (Marley) said.

3. Always be prepared

Train for THE day, be lucid but not paranoid.

Go to the grocery store before the very last day (like I did hehe).

4. Minimalism

Less is more. Try to do everything with less.

First of all it gives you time to shift your attention on more interesting things like activities you enjoy or see the people you love.

Second of all, nobody will leave this world with their material possessions soooo…..

Which leads us to …

5. Priorities

Each individual have their own, find out what are your deepest personal priorities. It will spare you some useful time to :

Focus on the essential.

6. Take care of yourself

If you don’t do it who will? Only you knows what makes you feel alive so it is up to you to go for it.

7. Life has good surprises

Wheel of life: I have seen people making the best of starting a new life from basically nothing. So yeah, miracles may happen too.

All I can say is that for better or worse this event washed away the past to project us in a new future. Now the future is in our hands…

Peace & Love

Full moon flow

Based on a big desire to share on last “full moon / friday 13th” energy combo 🌕🌠, I decided to start back writing and sharing with you guys.

Don’t know for yall but for me… wow last full moon was quite intense.

1. It’s over

One word: closure

I realized how some situations, relationships and habits naturally finished or vanished in a short period of time (ex: a few days only or less than a week). For some unexpectedly, some others without me even noticing it and lastly some cycles that I had to put an end to because it was about time… LOL.

The “art of letting go” also opened my eyes on what was best for me and my own sake… I finally understood lessons that life was trying to teach me through pain for years.

What a relief!

2. It is not always easy

One word: acceptance

Evolution and growth is not a cute process. As much as the moon is looking bright because of the sun’s light reflecting on it, this light also brightens a lot of deep aspects of ourself that were happily hidden in the shaddows.

That kind of exposure of our fears, insecurities and other uncomfortable truths is never a peaceful time and this process takes patience.

The purpose of it all is:

  • to bring our flaws and weaknesses to our attention so that we can embrace them
  • to bring a better knowledge of ourself to ourself
  • to LOVE yourself for what you are wholely and most of all inconditionally

3. Magic happens fast

One word: hope

Wanna know what is quite impressive with the full moon flow? It will always suprise me HOW FAST new elements and facts manifest in your life once you make space.

You can be holding on to toxic vibes for years and at the minute you let go BOOM something new and better can happen or come into your life.

🌱 Time is relative but growth is a mix of ups and downs. Remember to stay focused on you. And if you feel down, do not be scared to ask for help, the universe will manifest it for you too.

Peace & Love

Good morning !


Morning balcony view of the Caribbean sea

This is the oil on canvas I would have painted if I had the skills to paint. It is lacking the texture but I feel happy to express myself as a regular person with basic tools. Hope to reproduce it the classic way one day :)
Thanks technology!

Fresh air fresh art


Beach graffiti by unknown street/beach artist

I was actually taking fresh air by the beach when I bumped into this.
Question of the day: How should we call street art when it is located on the beach?
